Disparaging remarks from some players on Sean Foley
Talk about hotels and points and yawn, boring.
No charging stations.
Momofuku here too, same as US Open (tennis).
Generally, students of the game hover around the short game area. One spectator struck up a conversation w/a player about pitching.
Haven't been to a tournament in awhile, radar everywhere.
You can park behind Starbucks, walk across the coliseum to the buses (10 minutes, just like the US Open - tennis),
There are the ones that look like chili peppers and the ones that taste like cotton candy are my favorite. These were at Trader Joe's yesterday:
They're ok, cotton candy grapes still my favorite. Sugar Crunch has like a "dry" taste to it, it's a little different from your standard variety green grape, sweeter and harder obviously. I'd still buy it again, because you don't see these everyday, but always on the lookout for cotton candy grapes.
All things bicycle here.
This guy installed a Loud Bicycle. It's basically a car horn on a bike. Folks, don't be surprised if you hear a car horn and a bike is behind you. He also vlogged his ride via his helmet cam. LOOK AT ALL THOSE BICYCLISTS! You can hear him use the Loud Bicycle at around 05:54. I wondered if the drivers even noticed in time.
It annoys me when you go to a range and you can't take face on video. It's one thing if the range is full and you can't place your camera because the stall in front of you is occupied. That's fine. It's when ranges build dividers that block an important part of the swing, impact, some build stalls that block nearly everything. It's twenty freaking seventeen, and video is available to the masses, hell, you could even say most people have high speed video available now. In H forking D. No, in 4 f*
Not sure which aircraft carrier this was, but imagine hitting balls in the wee hours of the morning and then this passes in front of you? Those white spots are seamen standing at attention, all surrounding the ship. Such a big object makes not a peep of sound.
Commenting on a post of a before and after video, one redditor asked what was the difference. Apparently he/she saw none. This was the before and after top of backswing positions. And the guy got upvotes. The place is ADD.
No one at the ranges I go to make use of video, and if they do, they're doing it wrong, I'm one of the rare few who brings a tripod. Looking at the Facebook page of a popular instructor today, and it's the dead of winter, there are tons of people jury rigging whatever they have to practice indoors - school gyms, basements, backyards - from all over the place, US, UK, Canada. They're all using video, some high frame rate, although their angles could be better. So maybe I'm just in an unrepresenta
Justin Thomas, Charles Howell, LeeMcCoy. How do they hit the ball so far? Yes, there's this video among others. You look at Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson, Gary Woodland you'll go, oh, okay, I see why they bomb it. Intellectually, I know the answer - talent, maximizing impact conditions like angle of attack, lots of hard work and good info, but if someone who's relatively shorter and weighs less than his counterparts, although probably taller than the average male but not by that much, can drive t
Golftec (disclaimer - don't know anyone working there) was something I never looked into, probably confirmation bias or the social media out there about the hard sell to buy lesson packages. After trying out its video setup, the benefits of having both face on and down the line views simultaneously was intriguing, and a screen where you can see yourself live although you still have to manipulate your head to see the screen, VR goggles not available yet but you can bet that will be a thing in the
@bkuehn1952, great post.
Yeah, that kinda cognitive dissonance affects most golfers to a varying degree. Some blame, some explain away and then there are some that blatantly deny any ownership of a particularly poor day on the course.
A good friend of mine is fairly streaky - I guess you can say that about most weekenders like myself but his worst is 20+ shots than his best. He always says something at the end of a bad (for him) round, shooting let's say 104 - "yeah tough day, but we
You are correct, sir!
Although, the first time I ever broke 80, I made a hole in one on the 5th and shot 78. I always kind of felt like I still hadn't broken 80. After all, without that 1 in a million shot I SHOULD have carded at least an 80, possibly higher being as the hole in one came on a hole that was particularly difficult for me. (To that point, I'd never even birdied it.)
I ended up braking 80 again a couple weeks later. I felt that was more legitimate, if that makes any sense
I agree completely. The funny thing is, we never look back and say "I had no right to make that 50-footer on the second hole", or "I'll never chip one in from THERE again!" I know I've never said "I shot 75, but it really should have been 80". We take those for granted as well-deserved good results from improbable locations.
